Perfect Backpack

I must say I'm very happy with this hiking backpack it's light weight and holds a lot of stuff that you need this is a product that every hicker should have

Sturdy backpack

Well made and fits a lot of stuff. I highly recommend it .

Will this fit a week worth of clothes? How durable is it for backpacking? Im going to vietnam for 4 weeks.

Yes, this backpack will fit a weeks worth of clothes. Especially, if you roll your clothing!

Does the waterproof cover actually work? What does it look like? Does it come with the backpack or is it an extra cost?

It comes with the bag in a zipper on the bottom. I never used it but It looks thicker than a trash bag so I think it would be waterproof as long as you don't rip it up.

Nice backpack!

Backpack has held up well on the few trips we have used it.…

Nice backpack

Good quality backpack for day or overnight backpacking

Great backpack

My 11 year old daughter used this for an overnight hiking trip and she had no complaints! She said it was comfortable and easy to carry. She could also fit everything she needed for a hike in Vermont in the fall when you never know what you are going to get for weather and need to be prepared for anything!

Okay so I'm planning on going on a 2 day overnight backpacking trip by myself for the first time time? Would this have enough space for 2 days?

Have a good trip, 2days no problem

Will this fit in overhead compartments in an airplane

This bag exceeds the maximum size your carry on can be. I have had a bag experience sending a backpack in check-in. My backpack was torn and all contents placed in trash bags. My backpack arrived 2 days later.

a good backpack for a decent price

good quality of materials; light; strong enough; compact

is this good for backpacking?

Yes. Lightweight. Great straps across chest and waistline. Not hard on back or shoulders. Good size, convenient side pockets. Pocket for water pouch. Served me just fine on a 140 km trip through Spain.

I would like to use this backpack for travelling. Would it fit in the overhead compartment as carry-on?

Yes. I use mines for traveling all the time

Great backpack quality for the price.

Very good quality backpack with lots of space.…

Good, quality backpack

Good, quality backpack.…I also love that this backpack has water bottle pouches on both sides and the straps are very comfortable.…

Great school backpack

I haven't had any problems with this backpack.…The rain cover comes in handy for downpours, but I've used this backpack without the cover during a light rain and nothing inside was wet.…Overall, a great backpack for a great price and I would recommend it to anyone.

Would this backpack fit Ryanair compartments to avoid incurring in extra checked bag fees?

they worked for some of the other low cost carriers when we were in europe. . so I would think they can. . but also depends on how packed it is and IF you can fit in the space (how squishy it is if that makes sense). Also how tightly they adhere to their own policies. . .but I do think it will work. we went to Barcelona and Italy and had no problems on those flights.

how big of a sleeping bag can it carry?

Not sure but it's a pretty sizeable backpack

Would this work as a school back pack?

Yes it would... Bad ass backpack for the money... Can be used for alot of things.. U can expand it to have alot of room or zip it up and make it a compact backpack.. Im definitely happy with it....

Could i put a tent a nd poles in or around this??

Should be able to. Obviously depends on the length of the poles but this backpack has been exactly what I needed for caping/canoeing trips. It’s huge but doesn’t feel it. Good luck

Backpack for the minimalist

Perfect size to hold everything for a day hike. Map, phone, snack, water, and keys all fit with room to spare. Pack is comfortable to wear and a very nice teal color that does not clash with anything in my closet.

What is the waterproof rating for this backpack?

Love this backpack and having people ask where I got it. Used it in rain and all items stayed dry. It is nice because it is not to big and perfect for day trip.

How well can this backpack hold up for a 2-week international vacation?

we put our backpack through some rough experiences in Hawaii for a week and you can't even tell it's been used. I expect your backpack will last your international vacation and many more years. We stuffed ours and the seams held fine.

Does this backpack seem like it could adjust small enough for a petite woman or child?

If u get the 55 liter then absolutely.

That should be fine.
